    Horseman Repair Expert Needed

    Hi all. I have a beloved Horseman 980 that has been a dependable camera for quite a while. Recently something has been going on with the track assembly. It seems to jam up or go off the teeth. I have a history in camera repair and I've successfully disassembled, cleaned, and reassembled the track assembly several times in the past which has historically remedied the problem until now. Now no matter what I do the track wont work. It just locks up and when it does move it feel very rough. I dread that some parts may be worn out. Anyway, I need to know of a competent source that specializes in or is at least competent with the Horseman 980/ VH/ VHR series of cameras. If anyone can offer a recommendation I would be hugely appreciative. I really don't want to retire this camera. Thank you.

    I have not used the repair services, but they did order some hard-to-find Horseman replacement parts for me.

    Thank you! I spoke with them and they said that it could get expensive and problematic sending it across the border with customs and brokerage fees. They said to contact Horseman USA and handle it through them before opting to send it across the border. I've googled 'Horseman USA' and 'Horseman America' and nothing comes up. I understand that Schneider used to be the US distributor for Horseman but I contacted them and was told that they no longer are. Can anyone source a contact page or website for the current American distributor for Horseman or an authorized repair expert like the one above but located in the US? Thanks again for the help.

    Thanks Oren. I looked them up and people seem to rave about their expertise. I contacted them and they said to go ahead and send it to them and they'll look at it and get back to me with an estimate. Looks like I'm sending it over their way.

    Great! When the dust settles, could you post a few words letting us know how it worked out?
